This is the most incredible non-profit helping the women and girls in Cambodia and India. The best part about the organization is that they include all new volunteers and really educate them about the cause and make them feel like they are a part of the solution.
I was introduced to Nomi Network by my niece who traveled with them to Cambodia to work with women who are survivors and at risk of trafficking. She came back with stories of how lives where changed and hope was instilled in the women who are being helped by Nomi, despite the enormous challenges. I have been so impressed with the founders passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of the women whose voice has been stolen from them. They have already done great work by employing women and giving them income so they can gain control of their lives - this, while the founders carried their own full time jobs. They are now getting enough funding to begin leaving their jobs to work full time for Nomi. I know they will now grow Nomi even further and help significantly more women avoid the horrors of slavery. I love the products and carry my Nomi bag proudly knowing it is a product that helps lives - and I get compliments on it which gives me the opportunity to share the mission. Nomi needs to focus more on sales so they can get their products into stores. That will be helped by consumers asking stores to carry the Nomi products. This organization doesn't just give the women a fish, it teaches them to fish and that means lasting change for their lives and the lives of their children.
